Broadcast on 21st September 2016, when the leaves of London plane trees seemed weirdly green instead of gold, this episode of Ben Watson's Late Lunch With Out To Lunch radio show on Resonance FM presented recordings of the AMM All-Stars at Cafe Oto on 4th August 2016. Everything was superb, especially a gigantic jiffy bag of 48 cupcakes - courtesy the Psychedelic Bolsheviks - suppurating in the bottom of the cargo bike. Tracks were: "Opening with Iris and Jair-Rohm"; "Bloody Chickenpox Scribbledehobble"; "Baxter's Revenge"; "Pared Doom"; "Unter der ublige Meinschaft"; "Plant Peel"; "Dialectical Falafel" and "Esther on Laughter". The AMM All-Stars persisted that night of: PETER BAXTER drumset; OUT TO LUNCH mouthnoise, piano; PAUL SHEARSMITH trumpet, hosepipe didjeridoo, pBone; IRIS WATSON Yamaha Digital Keyboard; MORDECAI WATSON accordion; LEN MASSEY Moog synth; NATHAN BETTANY oboe; MARIE THOMPSON reconstructed tape machine; BEN MORAN HEALY dancing; T.H.F. DRENCHING Dictaphone; PAUL SEACROFT lapsteel guitar; JOHN PLANT on Corbyn; ESTHER LESLIE on laughter; DAVE BLACK on Potlatch.
Thanks and praise to Cafe Oto's soundman SIMON PETER HOLIDAY and digital recordist SHAUN CROOK for making us even more fantastic than usual.
